Please Help - Zeroed out funding for the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA)


The House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee zeroed out funding for the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) grants program which is the only federal U.S. grants program specifically dedicated to the conservation of our migrant birds throughout the Americas.

Congress should not defund a program that has a proven track-record of success, having supported 333 projects in 48 U.S. states/territories and 36 other countries since its inception in 2002 and leveraging millions of dollars in matching contributions. Advances in conservation for many declining species, such as the Cerulean Warbler, owe much to the NMBCA.

Your Representative needs to hear from bird advocates like you today to ensure that this critical bird conservation program continues to be funded.  Please tell your Representative how important this program is and urge them to restore funding for the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act.
